The 80% Personal Capacity Principle

When you’re working your ass off, putting your all towards a goal, how can you pace yourself so that you don’t crack? This brief essay from Justin Jackson talks about what what he did …after he cracked once. It is one of those ideas that is simple in hindsight, but easy to overlook when pushing yourself towards a destination, either because you’re enjoying the journey or feeling impatient over not reaching it fast enough. This was a particularly timely post for me.
